Bus Transportation on Campus

The University provides bus service between North and South Campus during the fall, winter and spring semesters. The buses run daily from 7:15 a.m. – 2:15 a.m. on weekdays and from 10:00 a.m. – 2:15 a.m. on weekends. North Campus stops include in front of Ehinger Gymnasium (Church Street), in front of Wayne Hall (Rosedale Ave.) and in front of Commonwealth Hall (New Street). South Campus stops include Sturzebecker Health Sciences Center (HSC), South Campus Apartments, The Village, East Village and Q and R Lots. Bus schedules are available at residence hall desks, the Sykes Student Union Information Center, Public Safety, and on each bus.  Limited bus service is also available during the first and second summer sessions only. For a full listing of shuttle services and schedules, visit our website.

An accessible bus containing a wheelchair lift is available for mobility-impaired students. Details on how to access this service are available on the Accessible Shuttle Bus website.

Students using the bus service should be advised that it is impossible to provide timely transportation between North and South Campus within the standard 10-minute class break. Therefore, students should plan and develop class schedules that allow time to be transported between the two campuses through the use of open class periods.

All Passengers using University Shuttles are required to wear a facemask or covering at all times. Eating on University Shuttles is prohibited.

Why does the bus leave when I'm running for it?

When the driver is trying to merge into traffic, they are looking in their driver’s side mirror so they may safely enter the travel lane. You may think they see you, but their attention is on the other side of the bus.

For everyone’s safety, they have been instructed not to pick up passengers away from the curb.

Where do I find information on bus changes due to inclement weather?
